Hip hop artiste Ernest Nsimbi aka GNL Zamba has said the movie he made with his wife Miriam has been selected for this year’s screening at the Cleveland International Film Festival.
Zamba made the announcement on his social media platforms on Monday, March 6, 2023 and said they are excited over the milestone, which started as a dream.
“Nsimbi Yes Family. We are going to Cleveland because our film Infinity is among those films that have been selected for this year’s screening at the Oscar qualifying stage,” he wrote.
GNL thanked the Ugandan film crew members for contributing to the production of the movie and told his fans to follow them on their social media platforms for future updates.
